75 Years Ago Today
Jan 26, 1939
This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date. She kept a diary from 1932 as a freshman in high school until she left us, too early, in 1999.
Now we are beginning 1939 - the year I was born, on July 1 - Bring it on! ;-)
Here is the daily entry for Thursday, Jan 26:
Birthday note: Leo Watrous
Up in good time. Washed & set my hair. Chasing the little roan heifer. had the best noodles for dinner. Ironed a dress, did the dishes, cleaned up & Pete took Betty and me to club at Hazel Bowman's. Put on the Carnival Committee. Had chicken sandwiches, ice cream, cake, coffee. Norma took us to Smith's afterwards. Pete & I home at 5:30. Did the chores ate supper and then Pete milked. Read the paper. Went to bed early.
My comment: I can actually visualize Pete and Eileen "chasing the little roan heifer." I have seen them do it, I've done it with Dad. Part of living on the farm, I suppose!! ;-)
Another club meeting... She is really getting involved in the community.
